  We specialize in helping companies to quickly and efficiently move from versions before 9 to current. The older versions use the Rails asset pipeline to package client assets. The current and recommended way is to use Webpack 4 for asset preparation. You may also need help migrating from the `rails/webpacker`'s Webpack configuration to a better setup ready for Server Side Rendering.

- ## Fragment Caching
201
-
202
- Fragment caching is a [React on Rails Pro](https://www.shakacode.com/react-on-rails-pro) feature. Fragment caching is a **HUGE** performance booster for your apps. Use the `cached_react_component` and `cached_react_component_hash`. The API is the same as `react_component` and `react_component_hash`, but for 2 differences:
203
-
204
- 1. The `cache_key` takes the same parameters as any Rails `cache` view helper.
205
- 1. The **props** are passed via a block so that evaluation of the props is not done unless the cache is broken. Suppose you put your props calculation into some method called `some_slow_method_that_returns_props`:
206
-
207
- ```ruby
208
- <%= cached_react_component("App", cache_key: [@user, @post], prerender: true) do
209
- some_slow_method_that_returns_props
210
- end %>
211
- ```
212
-
213
- Such fragment caching saves a ton of CPU work for your web server and greatly reduces the request time. It completely skips the evaluation costs of:
214
-
215
- 1. Database calls to compute the props.
216
- 2. Serialization the props values hash into a JSON string for evaluating JavaScript to server render.
217
- 3. Costs associated with evaluating JavaScript from your Ruby code.
218
- 4. Creating the HTML string containing the props and the server-rendered JavaScript code.
219
-
220
- Note, even without server rendering (without step 3 above), fragment caching is still effective.
221
-
222
- ## Integration with Node.js for Server Rendering
223

224
- Default server rendering is done by ExecJS. If you want to use a Node.js server for better performing server rendering, [email justin@shakacode.com](mailto:justin@shakacode.com).
